From a sourdough subscription service, Riser Bread has evolved into a cafe, serving their pastries from a charming space in a historic Queenslander in Toowong. 

The Queenslander, located in Miskin St, was given a bit of makeover to feature an open kitchen and plenty of space where diners can enjoy their bread, pastries, and coffee.

The first thing you will notice when you enter is the amount of natural light that illuminates the space, which accentuates the cafe’s rustic interiors.

Take your pick from their house blend and a rotation of filter coffee courtesy of Coffee Supreme, to go with your choice of comfort food like their croissants, Kouign-amann, and Fruit Danish.

Riser Bread is open Thursday to Satursday, from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and on Sundays, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Check out their Instagram @riserbread for updates.

The danishes & croissants here are out of this world! They are soo crunchy & buttery. They also use fresh ingredients on their fruit danishes which I love. I can’t stand when places use canned or frozen goods. Maybe the best place in Brisbane!

Everything about this place is top notch! There are too many delicious-looking things to try in one visit (seasonal danish and sausage roll are particularly good), with excellent coffee and lovely staff in a beautiful space.

Misspelt is a lovely little cafe in Paddington, with room enough for a table and a few chairs by the window and a pink hued pastry cabinet filled to the brim with sweet and savoury treats.

They have an extensive menu of mouthwatering treats, from sourdough to loaves, which you can wash down with a cup of coffee from their sibling, Blackout Coffee, which is located right next door.

The cafe is the brainchild of Eli Rami and Sam Holman, the same hospitality duo who brought Brisbane some of its most unique destinations, such as Noir Wine Bar which is in Given Terrace, and Uh-Oh Spaghetti-o, a pasta bar in Fortitude Valley.

Mis.spelt Paddington is open seven days a week. You can follow them on Instagram @mis.speltbakery.

THIS IS MY NEW FAVOURITE MORNING SPOT! Paddington has been seriously lacking in the baked goods department, it’s so refreshing to have a cute spot with a great selection of pastries, local produce and great coffee next door. The staff and manager are so friendly and fun, great vibes and energy

Mis.spelt blew me away! Couldn’t pick between the almond croissant and that mouth watering sausage roll, so I got both. Verdict: delicious. The space and the staff compliment each other with awesome personality to make this place the perfectly scrumptious twin to Blackout. The bread is also brilliant. Definitely a dangerous place to be a loaf of sourdough…
